Solomon Islands Country Report

Consisting of almost 1,000 islands and stretching between Eastern Papua New Guinea and Northern Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands exhibit stunning biological wealth, including some of the highest coral diversity in the world, half of all known mangrove species, and reefs teeming with fish.
